The wine is bursting with strawberries and cream. But it’s not just all fruit: there is a slight praline nuttiness in the background, which gives the wine some complexity. On the palate it is crisp and crunch and still full of red fruits. It is both easy drinking yet structured and serious enough to make a fine apéritif.
Serve & share our food- friendly Charmat during any celebration. A wonderful partner to softer white cheeses, fresh seafood, light desserts and fruits with good acidity like fresh strawberries.
Ready for immediate enjoyment.
